I successfully built the package on Slackware but the app refuses to run. I submitted a backtrace here on the list. If Tim does not respond today I'll open a bug report.

I read your comments in bug report 892. I will respond there about your unique situation.

The cause of failure is a sym linked profile directory. With the XDG updates that no longer will succeed and you need two distinct profile directories.

Thanks. As I can't yet get systemsettings to run, does that app allow changing the view to classic tree view?

Regarding whether tde-systemsettings needs patching, probably not, now that I understand your unique situation. I likely will patch anyway for file name conformance. Additionally, two of the desktop files in tde-systemsettings are the same as those provided in tdebase and they should be like-for-like or renamed to prevent overwriting.

tde-systemsettings does not appear anywhere in the TDE menu. How do Kubuntu users normally access systemsettings?
